Film Review: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)

Note: My review of the first film in the Star Trek series (Star Trek: The Motion Picture) can be found here. There’s an absolutely fascinating history behind the second Star Trek movie (it’s far too long to recount at length here, but I’d urge you to check out the film’s Wikipedia page even if you’re not a Trek fan – […]

Jurassic Park: The TL;DR Reviews

Since I started writing again last year, I’ve made a few attempts at going back to the beginning of a game or film series and reviewing each entry in turn; for whatever reason – usually issues with having a lack of time and/or interest – these attempts have always stalled.

The little brother of critical and commercial darling, Dinosaur Island – a […]

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition

I finished Gears of War again at the weekend (yep, Game Pass strikes again!). I hadn’t played it since the original release and, this time, I’d played the Ultimate Edition which adds in further stages, which previously only appeared in the PC version of the game. Not only that, but the whole game has been given a lick of paint […]
